Question: Did the translation of the Torah into Greek by seventy sages bring something to the world? After all, many were against it.
Answer: It was impossible to avoid because many Jews, first of all, stopped speaking Hebrew. Secondly, the gradual decline in the level of the people also played its role.
Of course, there was nothing positive in it. But in order to expand the boundaries of the real religion, that is, the true connection with the Creator, it was necessary to deepen and expand it into all the peoples of the world, and not remain the same as today’s Jewish religion, which is a very narrow, closed ideology that does not allow itself to be approached. It cannot exist that way for long. If it was not for the accelerated process of correcting the human soul, we would have seen all of Judaism disappear within literally one to two centuries. After all, all western Jews are practically absorbed into the nations where they live. Among American, French, and Russian Jews, there is a huge number of mixed marriages.
So, it is hardly necessary to work for the purity of blood here. That is why the Creator involuntarily forces us to accept as a Jew a person with a corrected spirit who aspires to the spiritual attainment of the world and not someone who performs some earthly actions and believes that this is the whole of Judaism.
A Jew is a state of the soul. If a person’s desires are directed toward bestowal and love for others and through them toward the Creator, toward the revelation of the Creator, and this is the most important goal for him, such a person is called Yehudi from the word “Yehud”—unity, rapprochement with the Creator.
